Hemisferium Naviculæ PinC013021
The Naviculæ Dial Pin is an altitude dial, signed by the French mathematician and cartographer, Oronce Finé, 1524. It was given this name because of its shape that resembles a small ship, “Navicula from Veneto”.
Its fanciful appearance does not affect in any way its conceptual rigour and relates it to the Regiomontanus quadrant.
The original piece is at the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, Milan.
